Sleep is sooooo over rated!

Posted by Jennaa Loire | Posted in | Posted on 4:44 AM


The past few weeks since I did a week to week catch up with you all, has just been insane for me. I have hardly had time to stop and let it all sink in. I have had a blast doing it and can not wait to see what the next few weeks have in store as there is heaps of fantastic competitions and casting calls happening at the moment. As if the last few weeks have not been crazy enough. I also have a mile long list of blogs sitting in my drafts box that I just need to add the final touches to and I will post away. It is amazing what a bout of insomnia allows you to accomplish.

Two massive things that have happened to me over the last few weeks in regards to my modeling career on SL. One is that I have been added to EWING International as a staff member. I can not put into words what this means to me. I can still feel my jaw hitting the hard wood of my desk as I spoke with Tiffany Dragonash about this. You could not get the smile off my face for quiet some time. I respect and look up to Tiffany completely as a model for her skills and her ability, dedication and ongoing work that she does. I sometimes wonder if there is a harder working model on SL.

When I first started modeling, EWING seemed completely out of my depths and I looked on in utter awe of their amazing shows, perfect models and talented staff members. I only dreamt of ever completing their model training and doing so without making a fool of myself. I never ever in my wildest dreams thought that one day I would get the privilege to be able to work amongst these elite group of people. I am even more excited if it is at all possible because there are so many amazing things happening at EWING at the moment! You can check their blog to keep up with whats going on... and you will want to do that!

EWING FASHION AGENCY

The Second just amazing thing that has happened to me over the last few weeks, is that I was asked to put in an application to AVENUE, and after doing so was asked to join their simply breathtaking pool of models. When I was IM'd and dropped an application I nearly died and honestly asked where they sure they had the right person LOL. I was honestly and utterly shocked. I was even sure once I had submitted the application it was going to be knocked back.
I am just so so thrilled to be asked to join the model pool, and when I saw the names in the group I was even more flattered. I can not wait to do my first show for them, and I hope to do them proud! I really want to thank everyone that made this possible, I hope to do you proud!

AVENUE really is an amazing premier creative agency that offers so much. Everything from,

It really is amazing to show how far AVENUE has come, as when it started in 2007 with just 3 staff, that's right 3! AVENUE now manages over 130 models and staff. I am sure they will continue to change the face of the SL Fashion industry as they have done so for the past 2 years! So looking forward to this!

I have also done some major shopping, some shows that like I said are in my mile long list to publish and I finally finished my house! I really want to do a blog on my house, as I just adore it! So now to a round up of some of the major happening's lately everywhere else.
